The Beginning

It all started when I was in high school. I knew that I was different from others. I have been fascinated into the spiritual side of things, like witchcraft and tarot cards. However, I pushed that aside and thought it was JUST a phase in my life. It didn’t hit again until 3 years ago when I took Sal Jade’s tarot course on Udemy, “Tarot Card Success.” Then, I was fascinated and started diving into spirituality even more.

For a long time, I didn’t know what my purpose was. However, I know my life path is to help people. I didn’t know how, but I knew that something in my life was going to change.

That’s when it happened: one day I was trying to get rid of some negative energy and let go of the past baggage. And BOOM! That’s when everything changed; I got hooked into spirituality. It became a part of me ever since. And I’m still trying to figure out how it changed my life.

What Spiritual Means to Me

Spirituality means a lot to me. I had my spiritual awakening 3 years ago.

I think spirituality is important to understand yourself. I cannot even begin to describe how much of an impact it’s had on me since then, and continues to have today.

It helps you stay grounded when things get tough, it teaches you patience, peace & love. And most importantly, that there is ALWAYS something to learn from every single situation.
